Craving the dark side in the spookiest month? How about some dark academia?

There's something about universities and schools that lend themselves so well to books with a darker tone. The settings themselves, usually Ivy League or similar, along with the smart-arse full of themselves characters that authors tend to conjure to populate the hallowed halls, mingle so well. From secret societies to posh kids gone wild, to… Continue reading Craving the dark side in the spookiest month? How about some dark academia?

The Read More Book Club: September 2020 wrap-up #feminist fiction

Morning all! Incredibly, that's September done and dusted for another year. It's been another shitehawk of a month 2020-wise with a lot of us back under some variation of lockdown and governments around the world losing any sort of grip on reality.

Under the radar haunted house novels you need to know about

I don't know about you but my mind is firmly on Halloween (y'know, apart from the millions of other things we have to think and worry about) and specifically my TBR list for the run up to the spookiest day.

The Read More Book Club: September 2020 #feministfiction

We're actually now into the third month of TRMBC but better late than never, right? It's the fifth of the… Continue reading The Read More Book Club: September 2020 #feministfiction
